Looking over my writings so far, you’d think I had kind of a hard time in Israel. And I did. And I didn’t. The Israelis can be difficult to deal with and a joy to be around. The conflict is there all the time, and so is a thriving country of millions. The tension — and the knowledge that thousands of rockets are pointed at you all the time — are in the air you breathe and the water you drink, and it’s one of the most profoundly joyous places I’ve ever been in. The toughest moral dilemmas a country can face played out every day we were there and every day I was still high on all the energy, the intensity, the stubborn confidence. We’ve been back for a week already, and I still feel it.

    Love love love your blog! Just happened to read some yesterday. I am an Israeli atheist who’s been living in the States most of my life. Your perspectives are intriguing and well written!
